“The more you understand, the more you love; the more you love, the more you understand.”
About This Course
We live in relationships - with ourselves, with others, with a community. Too often, our relationship life suffers from disconnection, stress, or misunderstanding. What would it be like to be more connected, awake, and alive in our relationships?
Mindful practices have the power to transform relationships, whether we are experiencing relationship stress or we simply want to strengthen beneficial qualities. In this workshop, we will learn to quiet down and “drop in” to how we are in our relationship life. We will learn more about our own relationship styles and patterns, and consider ways to open to more genuine and joyful connection.
WE WILL EXPLORE:
・Learn ways to quiet down and be fully present in relationship life.
・Increase our relationship understanding.
・Enhance our ways of connection.
・Decrease reactivity and negative momentum.
・Respond with greater wisdom and compassion.
In this single session workshop, learning will take place through a combination of teaching, facilitated discussion, and experiential exercises. This workshop is accessible for individuals and for those who wish to attend with a friend or partner, and is designed to benefit both those who have never meditated as well as those who wish to expand their practice to relationship life.
